Campfires Restricted at Yellowstone, Carbon County Sites

image002BILLINGS — Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks has banned campfires and restricted other fires at all fishing access sites and wildlife management areas in Yellowstone and Carbon counties.

Monday officials in Yellowstone and Carbon counties voted to issue Stage I restrictions, which ban campfires except where specifically exempted, and allow smoking only in vehicles and areas three feet in diameter that are cleared of flammable materials.

Montana FWP has no exemptions for campfires in fishing access sites and wildlife management areas in the two counties. People still may cook on an LP gas or propane stove that can be turned on and off.

The restrictions are in response to dry, warm weather that could increase the danger of human-caused wildfires. They will be in effect until further notice.

Fishing access sites reopen as river level recedes

image002BILLINGS — Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will reopen six fishing access sites that were closed by high water in the Yellowstone River last month.

In recent days, spring runoff levels have receded in the Yellowstone River allowing FWP maintenance crews to repair, clean and reopen the entrance roads and sites before the coming weekend.

Fishing access sites that will reopen include Captain Clark east of Pompeys Pillar, Bundy Bridge at Pompeys Pillar, Voyager’s Rest near Worden, Buffalo Mirage near Park City, Indian Fort at Reed Point and Grey Bear west of Big Timber.

The Gritty Stone fishing access site near Worden will remain closed because of deep silt and sediment throughout the area.

Flooding closes Grey Bear fishing access site

image002BILLINGS — Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks closed the Grey Bear fishing access site on the Yellowstone River five miles west of Big Timber Wednesday because of flooding.

Both the boat launch at the east end of the area and the camping area were closed after the Yellowstone River overflowed into the site.

Earlier in the week, FWP closed five other fishing access sites in south central Montana because of flooding. They are Captain Clark east of Pompeys Pillar, Gritty Stone and Voyagers Rest near Worden, Buffalo Mirage at Park City and Indian Fort at Reed Point.

With spring runoff in full swing the region’s rivers and streams are running well above normal flows. With warm temperatures predicted for the rest of the week could rise further.
